    Back in the day, thats really all one would do. No suprise, they failed miserably at it ;D Hell, XP is what NT 4 should have been. At least the fallbacks of 3.11 were understandable. But with the stolen code they had, and gates' actual code he did, I can't see how or why the Windows codebase is so shitty -- especially now ...

    I knew a guy who was a developer during that age of Unix and I asked him about Xenix and he told me very few people used it. So, naturally, I asked why, and he said it had stability problems.

    Ironic isn't it?
